Following Free Agency my phone

Postby BCG51585 on Sat Jun 30, 2012 10:25 pm

What is the best way to get mobile alerts asap for all free agency transactions? ESPN? TSN? Thanks in advance!

I would say Twitter and TSN Mobile app. Twitter is probably the fastest these days.

I personally follow about 1,100 people on twitter, I'd say 900 of those are hockey related people, so I'd say that's a relatively short list.

btw, shameless self-plug:

I will be re-breaking the news from all of the outlets tomorrow and making hollow predictions beforehand.

ps. Bobby Ryan to the Ducks. e3

Yeah, we all get that way before heading on vacation. It always seems work gets crazy the last 36 hours before heading out of town, and it doesn't get much busier for hockey guy than July 1 free agency day. :P

Any twitter accounts that will be tweeting only the signings? I wanted to set an account to send all signings to my phone in a text since I will be stuck at work and won't really be able to follow everything.

Mackenzie is your best bet pittsports. He will have more than signings but only legit info.

Thanks, that is what I was thinking. I think I'll turn on mobile notifications for McKenzie and Dreger.
